    Amazing Tour
    Hamda_M, Mar 2023
    I highly recommend this tour, our tour guide was on time and made sure we were able to see the aurora. A magical night. Many thanks to Heimer!
    Once in a lifetime experience
    Attila_N, Feb 2023
    I booked this tour with Heimir because of all the great reviews I read and was planning on proposing to my partner under the northern lights. I let Heimir know in advance about my plans and he made sure we do it at the right moment and also surprised us with a small bottle of champagne. He was great, took several photos of each person on tour, explained things about the northern lights and when 2 large tour buses arrived at our first location we moved to a more secluded area that was just ours. Heimir is a 1 man team who did the driving, photography, story telling, prepared snacks and drink and paid attention to everyone individually and made sure they felt good. You might be thinking that this tour is expensive but it really is not when you take into account the service you are getting and the experience you are about to have if you are lucky enough to see the northern lights. Jumpsuits were provided for those who wanted it. The only thing I would say is that he could pay more attention to dietary needs as we and one more person couldn’t enjoy the snacks and there was no alternative.
    Incredible experience
    Christine_S, Jan 2023
    I would recommend this tour to anyone, and did to random strangers at my hotel! Our guide was so enthusiastic and determined to make sure that we had the best experience possible. And we did! We were originally scheduled for Friday night, but it was overcast so we rescheduled for Saturday, we went to 3 locations and saw the lights at all three. It was so awesome to just watch and not worry about taking pictures. He sent a link to Dropbox as promised and I downloaded the amazing photos. Thanks Heimar for an incredible experience.
    We saw the northern lights and it was amazing

    Our family worried if we would miss seeing the northern light. It was our last tour agenda before heading back home. Michael was very resourceful and was able to find a spot at the right timing for the northern lights. We saw the northern lights and it was amazing. And hot chocolate served was just perfect for the very cold night.
    Awesome tour!

    Non disability friendly!

    They assured me that I’d be well looked after with care and assistance due to my disability but that hadn’t happened so unfortunately they lied to me and kept my money.

    Our guide Mike was very attentive and entertaining. He made the experience very exciting and memorable! The snacks and hot chocolate were delicious and the cured leg of lamb that he shared was extra special!
    Fantastic experience
    Kate_S, Dec 2022
    We really enjoyed this trip, our tour guide Michael was very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble He took us to the secluded spots where we were able to watch the lights with no distractions. Nothing was too much trouble and we were extremely fortunate to see a fantastic show Highly recommend
    Unforgettable trip to see Northern Lights
    Danilo_M, Dec 2022
    This a place to visit especially with this tour company. Michael the driver/ tour guide is very knowledgeable when it comes to chasing Aurora Borealis. We really had a great time . If you're cellphone camera not working well he has a pro camera to take your pictures and if you were unlucky not seeing Aurora during your trip you can always join the following schedules for free. Hot cocoa and cookie snacks is a plus for a freezing weather. Highly recommended.
    Great tour guide and lots of extras!
    Lisa_S, Dec 2022
    Heimir is super great! Great snacks and warm snow suits!!! Warm van!! We didn’t see the lights but he didn’t give up. We rescheduled for free for a second night.
    Guaranteed chance of a lifetime!
    Richard_S, Nov 2022
    Awesome once in a lifetime trip! This guide will get you to see the Northern lights. Our guide was very passionate about his craft, and brought warm jumpers, traditional Iceland snacks, and his own camera to share YOUR story. Take note: this guide will do everything in his power for you to see the lights on your first night. This tour won’t take you out if there is a very low possibility of success. Be prepared to stay into the morning hours. I’m thinking how I might fit in one more tour with this guide to experience this again!
    Dancing Northern Lights!
    Sunag_K, Oct 2022
    Amazing tour, short and sweet. Got to see the different colours of Northern Lights… green, purple. You could actually see the Northern Lights actually dancing in front of you.
    This is it! Best experience ever!
    Lililani_K, Oct 2022
    Heimar was our guide and I cannot recommend enough what an amazing guide he is! He was very communicative, he took amazing photos of us and the Northern Lights and also provided them free of charge. We were in a small group and in a secret spot no one else was in. I would do this again and again. He provided beverages and snacks, as well as heavy duty snow suits. He catered to every single one of us. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!! 10/10!!
    Fantastic night.
    Michelle_M, Sep 2022
    Heimer was great and really knew where to take us to see the lights. It was a fantastic night and fulfilled a bucket list wish.
    Without Exaggeration, The Best Tour of My Life
    Brian_W, May 2022
    I can't possibly express how amazing this tour and, specifically, Hemir is. Not only were we able to see the lights but his photographs were amazing. His absolute passion for the lights - and for sharing that experience with visitors - shines through. The communication was crystal clear, the pickup was right on time and his van was spotless. He worked a network of observers, friends and others around the city to find the best spots to see the lights, explaining what he was doing as he went. The small group lended well into great conversations and sharing of experiences never feeling like we were being "herded" or rushed. We made a few stops along the way looking for the peak of the lights and the best environment, finally stopping at the side of a river. He guided us through how to get the best photos and had amazing equipment that captured truly once-in-a-lifetime memories. He could charge 3 times what he does and it would still be worth it. Needless to say, highly recommend this tour.

    Fantastic night. Great host, went above and beyond to find the most amazing display. Made my holiday!
    Best Northern Lights Tour by Far!!!!
    Jonathan_B, Mar 2022
    What an incredible experience. The guide was amazing!! So kind, and determined to help us find the best viewing area. Then spent time with everyone helping and also set up a "hospitality" table of drinks and snacks. I couldn't have asked for a better tour for the Northern Lights!
    Great tour and finally,...
    amylouisehutchins, Feb 2022
    Great tour and finally, on our 3rd trip to Iceland we saw the Northern lights. Very grateful that we were recommended to change our tour date due to the weather forecast. Our guide took lots of photos for everyone on the tour, completely free of charge. Thank you again, we can't wait to see our photos!
